Distracted driving 'epidemic' blamed for crash that killed teacher, daughter in S. Minn.

A 24-year-old motorist with a slew of driving infractions has admitted that his cellphone diverted his attention when he rammed his SUV into the back of a stopped car on a southern Minnesota highway, killing the other driver and her daughter, authorities said.

Rachel Harberts, 43, of Dodge Center, Minn., was taken off life support at a Rochester hospital and died Saturday, eight days after the Sept. 7 crash on Hwy. 14 in Claremont killed her 8-year-old daughter, Emerson Harberts, and badly injured her 12-year-old son, Jaxon Harberts.
